every road i have to walk
and every key that has no lock
and every door i've had to knock
on when evening comes.

and every night without a day
and every word i have to say
and every barn where i lay
when my legs feel numb

a summer night
a winter sky
thoughts of rain
a pale goodbye
and i dream in grey
and i dream in grey

grasping at a flitting thought
the horizon i have sought
the special place that i lost
with the rooster's call

on every corner of the road
past the pavement where i stood
the streetlights flicker like my mood
till the moment is past

the last time 
that i smiled
the morning dew
our fates entwined
and i dream in grey
and i dream in grey

i am there i am here
till the day we disappear
we are not what we were
and my dream is a song

and my dream is a song.

would have been much more comfortable with this poem song had i written it in some other season.

Good Morning, I would like to feature this poem in either August or September on my Poetic License series. Once a month I post great poetry that I find by searching blogs such as yours. If you allow me to use your poem, you will get full credit and a link back to your site.

Three times a year I will also be combining the previous four months into one large magazine style post. If you don’t mind please let me know. If you would like to see an example, the first magazine issue of the last trimester of 2010 was posted on January 6th ( with the poems from Sept-Dec of 2010.

Here is the link to the January Poetic License ( if you would like to see it before you decide. Thank you for your consideration, regardless of your decision.
